: In the entire Stones library, what would you consider to be the
: greatest 10 seconds? For me it's the openning to Gimme Shelter.
Here's a few...
Gimme Shelter (probably my fave... the entire intro, right up to the moment when Charlie slams those skins!)
Loving Cup (Beautiful!)
Flip the Switch (Charlie Watts, man, Charlie friggin' Watts!)
Midnight Rambler (the studio version's intro is awesome, but the rest is just okay...)
Start Me Up (Oh, God yes...)
I'm Free (Oh, God, yes...)
Stray Cat Blues (Mick's coos are great.)
Miss Amanda Jones (Keef out-riffs 'em all!)
Coming Down Again (see Loving Cup)
All of these refer to the intros, of course, and I too could go on a lot longer. If I got into ANY 10 seconds, though... this site would become a pay site...
Slowly rocking on...
